THE. DAILY iSvxSfriNQ TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 1871.
BY J. O. AVHITTIEn.
The harp at Nature's advent strung
Has never ceased to play;
The song the Rtars of mourning sung
Has never died away.
And prayer is made, and praise is given,
Uy all things near and far;
The ocean looketh up to heaven
And mirrors every star.
Its waves are kneeling on the strand,
As kneels the human knee,
Their white locks bowing to the sand,
The priesthood of the sea !
They pour their glittering treasures forth,
Their gifts of pearls they bring,
And all the listening hills of earth
Take np the song they sing.
The green earth sends her incense np
From many a mountain shrine;
From folded leaf end dewy cup
She pours her Bacred wine.
The mist above the morning rills
Rise white as wings of prayerf
The altar-curtains of the hills
Are sunset's purple air.
The winds with hymns of praise are loud,
Or low with sounds of pain:
The thunder organ of the cloud,
The dropping teats of rain.
With drooping head and branches crossed
The twilight forest grieves,
Or speaks with tongues of Pentecost
From all its sunlit leaves.
The Hue sky is the temple arch,
Its transept earth and air,
The music of the starry march
The chorus of a prayex.
So Nature keeps the reverent frame
With which her years began,
And all her signs and voices shame
The prayerless heart of man.
THE FEAR OF DEATH.
BY LORD BACON.
Men fear death, as children fear to go in
the dark; and as that natural fear in children
is increased with tales, so is the other. Cer
tainly, the contemplation of death, as the
wages of sin and the passage to another world,
is holy and religious; but the fear of it, as a
tribute due nnto nature, is weak. Yet, in re
ligious meditations, there is sometimes a mix
ture of vanity and of superstition. You Bhall
read in some of the friars' books of mortifica
tion, that a man should think with himself
what the pain is if he have but his fingers'
ends pressed or tortured, and thereby imagine
what the pains of death are when the
whole body is corrupted and dissolved; when
many times death pasaeth with less pain than
the torture of a limb; for the most vital parts
are not the quickest of sense. And by him
that spake only as a philosopher and natural
man, it was well said: "The pomp of death
is more feared than death itself." Groans and
convulsions, and a discolored face, and friends
weeping, and blacks, and obsequies, and the
like, show death terrible.
It is worthy the observing that there is no
passion in the mind of man so weak but it
mates and masters the fear of death; and
therefore death is no such terrible enemy,
when a man hath so many attendants about
him that can win the combat of him. Re
venge triumphs over death; love slights it;
honor aspireth to it; grief flieth to it; fear
preocenpieth it; nay, we read, after Otho the
Emperor had slain himself, pity, whioh is the
tenderest of affections, provoked many to die,
out of mere compassion to their sovereign,
and as the truest sort of followers.
It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a
little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as
the other. He that dies in an earnest pursuit
is like one that is wounded in hot blood, who
for the time scarce feels the hurt; and there
fore a mind fixed and bent upon somewhat
that is good doth avert the dolors of death;
but. above all. believe it, the sweetest canti
cle is: "Lord, now lettest thou Thy servant
depart in peace.
SUMMARY OF CHURCH NEWS.
The Presbyterian has had the curiosity
to look through the statistical tables ap
pended to the Minutes of last May's General
Assembly, in order to find out the strength
of its denomination in the principal cities
Separating the rural congregations which
were united with them in their presbyteries,
it counts up the reported numbers on the
communion-rolls as follows: Philadel
phia, 18,137; New York, 15.71C; Brook
lyn, 74(18; Cincinnati, 3302; Chicago,
32 73; Baltimore, 293; St. Louis,
2112: Boston, 731. Calculating the ratios of
Presbyterian communicants to the total in
habitants, it finds that Philadelphia has one
Presbvterian communicant to every 37 of
the population; Brooklyn, one to every 53
New York, one to fi; Cincinnati, one to 05;
Chicago, one to 01; Baltimore, one to St
Louis, one to 147; Boston, one to 341. These
figures do not represent the aggregate of
Presbyterian communicants, but only those
of the one branch (late two branches) which
met in the reunited General Assembly last
The annual catalogue of Union Theolo
gical Seminary, Virginia, reports the number
of students in the institution for tne session
of 1870-71 to be 40. Of these, 14 are from
Virginia, 11 from North Carolina, 5 from
Tennessee. 5 from Kentucky, 2 from Mis-
Bouri. 2 from Alabama, 4 from West Virginia,
1 from Maryland, and 2 from Texas. Six
only of these forty-six are in the senior class

At the quarterly communion on Sabbath,
March 20, in the First Presbyterian Church,
Lvnchburg, Va.. the names of fifty-one per

The Rev. S. W. Noyes, of Commeroe,
Michigan, has recently withdrawn from the
Methodists and joined the Congregationalists.
Rev. Messrs. McDonald, of Boston,
Boole, of New York, and Inskip, of Balti
more, expect soon to start for a missionary
tour across the Plains, taking a bio; tent capa
ble of holding 4000 persons. They intend to
hold an old-fashioned camp meeting at Salt
Lake City, with the expectation of winning
back to the fold many Mormons who were
formerly Methodists, and who, it is reported,
are anxious to return to their former faith.
The Newark Conference has chosen
Ilackettstown for the next meeting.
At the New York Methodist Treachers'
meeting, a short time since, it was agreed
that there could be but little spirituality in a
Church where there is a taste for theatre
going and dancing, and the opinion was ex
pressed that the discipline of the Church
should be exercised to cure the disposition
for such enjoyments.
The Baptist Missionary Union have esta
blished a mission in Greece, to the charge of
which the Rev. D. Z. Sakellarius has been ap
pointed. The effort, in progress for more than a
year, to increase the endowment fund of
Newton Theological Institution, in Massachu
setts, has been successful. The new subscrip
tion of .1200,000 was completed on the 2Dth
of March, payable in three instalments; the
first in thirty days, the second and third in
one and two years respectively. The endow
ment fund is now .33.",000, independent of
buildings and nearly one hundred acres' of
valuable land, and the prospects of the insti
tution for growth and usefulness were never

has withdrawn its fellowship from the Rev.
E. C. MileB, of Springvale, becanse of his

divinity of Christ.
-Six thousand dollars in gold has been re
ceived from the Tabernacle Churoh, New
York, for the endowment of the Professor

logical Seminary, California.
The Moravians of the British Provinces
report 5423 members, including 323G commu
nicants. This shows a decrease of 48 mem
bers, or 20 communicants. The unfavorable
condition is accounted for by the number of
changes of pastors that have taken place (13,
or more than a third of the whole number).
by the failure of some pastors by age and in
firmities, by two congregations having been
left nnsupplied, and by a division which has
taken place in one of the congregations on
the question of pews.
The United States Government has as
signed to the Mission Board of the Reformed

The Liberal Chruttia n, (TXsv. Dr. Bellows),
noticing Mr. Horace Greeley's confession of
faith on the divinity of Christ and on future
punishment, thus characterizes the Unitarian
doctrine on the former subjeot:
"Unitarianism leaves the question of
Christ's nature perfectly open. It does not
reject any who accept Jesus Christ as Lord
and Master in any sense, leaving interpreta
tions and explanations to each disciple s own
mind and conscience. A large part of tne
Unitarian body, in all ages, have been Arians,
and, if not Arians, nave recognized in Christ
something more than human. Possibly, Hu
manitarianism has increased in the body; but,
in our judgment, it has reached its utmost
extent, and will henceforth deorease.
After the natural desire has ultimated itself
to offset the exaggerated tendency of
Trinitarian Christians to deify Christ, by
emphasizing or dwelling exclusively upon His
humanity, the reaction will commence, by
which the something more than human the
real element of His power in the world will
again be made prominent. Meanwhile,
thousands of Unitarians have never let this
sense of the divine in Christ die out of their
faith. Mr. Greeley expresses, therefore, the
genuine idea of that part of the Unitarian
body which has been most permanent, and
which, we suspect, will, from this period,
grow more abundant."
A correspondent of the UniceritaUit,
who lives at Reading, Pa., entertained a mem
ber of the Philadelphia Conference of our
Church during its late session, and was visited
by other members, lie acknowledges him
self favorably impressed with Methodist
preachers. Ho writes this besides to his de
nominational paper: "lne pulpit of our
church in Reading was supplied last Sun
day, both morning and evening, by ministers
from the Conference. The day was beauti
ful, and the attendance large. The sermons
were well reoeived by our people, and the
preachers seemed to enjoy the novelty of
discoursing to congregations unaccustomed
to their methods. I cannot learn that either
party were injured, and I doubt not that
soma good was done if in no other way, by
thus learning in how many things two widely
different sects are found to agree. Though
there are diversities of gifts of believing,
there may yet be bat one spirit.
The Tope and the Jesuits neglect no op
portunity to show their dissatisfaction at the
Italian occupation of Home. Prinoe Humbert
and the Princess Margherita being in the city,
an order was issued forbidding the priests
from saying mass before them under any cir
cumstances in wnicn tnere mignt be an impli
cation of acknowledgment of their royal
dicnity. On two occasiona only were they
able to bear the mass in the mannner accorded
to princes, at Santa liana Maggiare. The
first time it was said by the Prince's own
chaplain, the Abbe Anzino, who left Rome
immediately, fearing to be suspended from
bis functions. The second time, the prinoipal
door of the church the publio and honorable
entrance was kept shut against them. Enter
ing privately, they heard the mass performed
by a beneficed priest, who cannot now
be induced to repeat bis indiscretion. The
ert-at Jesuit orator Curci preached a scanda
lous sermon in the church Gesu, to the effect
that the Roman liberals are fiigt, and little
viy, and applied indecent and obscene epi
thets to the Princess Margherita. This lmpu-
ieht and foul address caused Higuor Corte t
brine the matter before the Chamber of De
puties at Florence. A writ was at once isauwi
against Outci. The Civil Code of Italy was
mads jjliaUe to tho city of Koine on k eb-
ruary 1, so that the foul-mouthed preacher
oould be legally arrested. Happily for him
and for the imperium in imperio, the Cham
ber had already adopted not without great
opposition that seventh article of the guaran
tees which exempts from the intrusion of the
police the palaces occupied by the Pope, the
Conclave, and the Councils. Curd took re
fuge at the Tope's toe, and there he stays,
much more truly a prisoner than thB Tope,
who pretends to be Bhut up there against his
